Route Grade Votings

Brilliant intricate face climbing which is only slightly marred by the escape options on the top slab. Climb up the centre of the slab to the top horizontal break. Take a deep breath and balance on up the slab past one tiny wire. Escaping right from half way up the slab, or placing a side-runner in Joint Effort, drops the grade to a still-excellent E2.
E3 to finish direct seems fair... E2 to traverse off
Agreed, low in the grade but very pleasant the normal way, direct looks solid E3. A nice route despite finishing up the Nails.
Thought the hardest part was the finish up the Nails groove. Seriously.
The hardest section of WTHT is the finish, however you do it, I think it should get the direct finish and an E3 tick
Liquid Courage and Cathy's Clown are both far better.
My friend and I seem to disagree on exactly where this route goes!
Does the thread really exist, or is it a rural myth? I couldn't find it...
It is there. Honestly!
It wasn't, yesterday.
No threads in-situ, and the only place I could see where you could place one was just below the crux. Would have been a bit tricky to place on the lead, but would have been more reassuring than the wires I placed. Very good climbing throughout
Some consensus on the line seems necessary ... if you go straight up the slab it must be E3. There's at least one hard move left up there, and very little gear (one RP unless you take a side runner in Joint Effort). However, I'd agree on low E2 if you finish up The Nails. Either way an excellent route!
